Over the past two months we’ve received a flood of requests that we resume sending out the daily Big Something email. Ye asked and ye shall receive: The Big Something Daily Email will resume operation tomorrow, June 14.

If you would like to receive the daily email from us once again, you must do one of two things:

1. If you were on our email list previously, look for a confirmation email in your inbox on Monday, June 13, 2011 and click on the link to confirm that you wish to receive either the daily email OR the Fridays-Only Digest (please choose only one).

2. You can click HERE and enter your email, or go to KRCC.org and find the sign-up box in the right-hand column.

If you have no idea what we’re talking about, each weekday, The Big Something at KRCC.org offers stories, slide shows, videos and other features that highlight overlooked facets of the life, history and culture of the Pikes Peak region in a way that no one else does. In May of 2009 we began sending out a daily email with links to these features along with free downloads, historic images from the Pikes Peak Library District’s Digital Photo Archive along with links to news and concert information. We recently discontinued the daily email due to problems with SPAM filters at the major email providers. We are resolving those issues by rebuilding our daily email list from scratch.

As an added incentive to reconfirm your subscription to The Big Something daily email, we’ll randomly select three subscribers to receive Downtown Partnership Gift Cards each week over the next four weeks,which can be redeemed at more than 100 participating downtown restaurants and shops. One subscriber will receive $45 in Downtown Gift Cards and two more will each receive a $15 gift card.
